FILE - This June 25, 2014 file photo shows James Corden at the New York premiere of "Begin Again" in New York. Corden may be stepping in for outgoing CBS host Craig Ferguson. Corden "appears to be in contention" to take over "The Late Late Show," according to an industry source who spoke Tuesday, Aug. 5, on the condition of anonymity because that person wasn't authorized to speak publicly about the negotiations. CBS declined to comment. Scottish-born Craig Ferguson has hosted "The Late Late Show" since 2005. In April he announced he would be leaving at year's end. (Photo by Evan Agostini/Invision/AP, File)
